Was referred by locals - not disappointed. Although early evening they seemed to be out of a couple of disheds...found that odd in such a popular restaurant. Prices were very reasonable. Very much would visit again.

We had the meat plate for 2. There were some pieces I didn't like, but that's a personal opinion. The beer was good and the staff was nice. The women's bathroom was very gross (sticky and no toilet paper), but they quickly put some new paper up when I asked for it.

We had a friends meeting in this place. It was Monday, we had a reservation. They had a promotion on beer, which was good. Some of us ordered food - except the veal it was disgusting. The waiter was "in training" and he was bothering us every 5 mins. After 2 hours the staff said we have to go because... More

Apparently real polish food. Very good and big pork schnitzel, testy petato salad (but i alweys Think its german dish... ) delicious dumplings and kaszanka. The portmonetka are huge, but the prices low. Fun loud place with regional live music. More o beer and vodka with friends, not necessarily on date.

The place to try Polish cuisine in the old town. It was quite popular and so it would help to go early. The food came in big portions. So it might be a good idea to share.

This is a very exciting place. The atmosphere is relaxed but can seem a bit hectic with some noise. There were 3 people playing instruments and they were good and occasionally people started singing along. The service was good. We were 11 people and although it seemed quite full we were served fast. Impressive to see the waiters swinging giant... More

Wonderful restaurant with great menu and live music, in the evening. The food selection is well diverse and very tasty. The portions are extremely generous and the service is quite good. The restaurant is located beside the Royal Hotel across the Wawel Royal Castle. Highly recommended and not expensive.

We booked a table here as it is extremely popular and were not disappointed. The portions are huge (we struggled to finish it all) and beautifully presented. Great service, quirky building, great place to eat in Krakow.
